Scan real-world objects and create 3D models. UA affiliates can check out a 3D scanner at the Rhonda G. Tubbs Tech Toolshed (Main Library, first floor) for up to 72 hours.
What is 3D scanning?
A 3D scanner takes a full set of snapshots of an object and stitches them together to create a 3D model. The model can then be used for 3D printing, diagramming, or analysis.
Why is the library offering this service?
We endeavor to provide the latest technology and tools to enhance research and experiential learning. 3D scanning is used to scan real-world objects so they can be incorporated into the product design process, reverse engineering, preservation of cultural heritage, personalized medical treatment and as a start of 3D printing.
